    At the appointment you will need to agree to your claimant commiments. After that you just need to wait for the letter, which will tell you whether you're entitled to payments. At some point you will receive the ESA50 form to fill in and return with all your supporting evidence.

    You will need to make sure you continue to send the fit notes until a decision is made on the work capability assessment.

    If entitled to payments you will receive your money every fortnight.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
